    Herniating?

    Kaiser may do it for free or a small fee. One of my co-worker just had it done thru kasier. If the excess skin is causing rashes or any other skin problems and you maintain your weight loss for 1yr or longer they'll cover it, and may depends on what type of coverage you have...good luck!
  5. I hope you feel better. 2 days post op in my opinion is too soon also my doc opinion. I was on clear liquids for 1wk then I advanced to full liq. If full is too much for you go back to clear liq I don't think it will hurt you, but check with your doc...take care

  14. IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHAT YOUR INSURANCE REQUIRE. MINE REQUIRED A PSYCH EVAL,NUTRITIONAL CONSULT AND BMI WITHIN A CERTAIN RANGE. YOUR SURGEON WILL REQUIRE DIFFERENT TESTS AS WELL. HOPING TO SUMMIT PAPER WORK THIS WEEK :biggrin5: HOPE THIS HAS BEEN HELPFUL..GOOD LUCK!

    My Decision

    DO WHAT'S BEST FOR YOU , BECAUSE IF THE SHOE WAS ON THE OTHER FOOT (MIL) AND ANY OTHER, THEY WOULD DO WHAT'S BEST FOR THEM. IF YOU THINK YOUR REALLY GOING THRU WITH THE SURGERY, MAYBE YOU SHOULD START CHECKING INTO NUTRITIONAL CLASSES (IF REQUIRED BY YOUR INS) SO YOU CAN GET A JUMP START ON YOUR JOURNEY..I WISH YOU THE BEST OF LUCK!
  16. "Pissed" it's been a week and half, the shrink has not dictated my eval. From what I've been told he's a month behind,really. I have completed all my requirements, now just waiting to summit info to the ins. co. Thanks for listening just had to VENT!

    Your pictures are such and inspiration, I'm looking forward to my day. Keep up the good work...you look great
  18. There's no excuse for you to be treated like that, nor should your kids behave like that. No offense, but for him to treat you like crap for 10yrs he has to lack self esteem for whatever reason. If your kids are young and you decide to separate, they will get over it, you need to think about your happiness as well. I bet if you sought child support and alimony he may change his tune. I wish you all the happiness...Take care!

    Pre-op Diet???

    I seen my surgeon today for the 1st time, and he mentioned the south beach diet since my meals will consist of protein and among others..hope this helps.
  21. Stay encouraged, don't let your surgery be in vain. There's a lot of encouraging people on this board as well as discouraging people and I truly believe the positive people out weigh the negative people. We know it's easy said than done, and I plan to find out for myself come the new year. I've been educating myself about the procedure and the after care. Maybe you should talk to your dietitian and get some pointers. I wish well
  22. That's great..is it self pay or is your insurance picking it up, because I was thinking about having the plication done as well, but only if my ins. will pay for it.
  23. Question..will insurance cover the cost for the "plication" along with the lap band??

  24. Sorry to hear that your appointment went "yucky"...run..get away from a person like that.. I wish you the best..keep us posted!!
  25. Sorry to hear your having some problems..but to my understanding, if you have a PPO you can switch "PCP" at any given time for what ever reason, double check your policy to be sure, I know my policy allow me too! Remember your health comes 1st and I'm sure there's plenty of dr's out there that is willing to give you a letter as well as making sure your labs are within normal range..Good luck!
